As the previous year bids us a sad farewell, the New Year promises new exhilarating journeys. Let’s see what 2011 has in store.
The National Opera Ballet presents for the first time in Greece at the National Opera's Olympia Theatre Hans Christian Andersen's fairytale “The Snow Queen”. Choreographer Ray Barra has come up with a two-act romantic ballet set to the music of Russian composer Aleksandr Glazunov (until 4th January, at 20.00).
The “Magic Flute”, Mozart’s best known opera, is also presented at the Greek National Opera under the direction of Arnaud Bernard (29/12-6/1, at 20.00).
The Greek operetta “The Love Bacillus” is still on, always at the Greek National Opera (28 & 30/12, at 19.00).
Theexhibition at the Benaki Museum includes the majority of Dimitris Pikionis’s oeuvre, both in painting and architecture, acquired by the Museum due to a major donation by the Pikionis family.
The National Gallery hosts the exhibition "Art Nouveau and Modernism: Treasures from the Petite Palais Paris Museum of Fine Arts". More than 150 paintings, furniture pieces, posters, jewellery designs and other objects will be on display reminding us of an era that began during the late 19th century and lasted until World War I, widely known as “The Belle Époque”.
Belle Époque, this beautiful epoch is being also revived in every corner of the city of Thessaloniki with music, dancing, theatrical performances, and mostly by the great exhibition titled “Toulouse Lautrec” housed at the Teloglion Foundation of Art.
“Holy Mountain. A termination place” is still on! Photographs of the monastic community of Mount Athos taken by the Polish photographer Tomasz Moscicki are on display at the Museum of Byzantine Culture.
